What could cause all the gauges and most lights in the instrument panel of a 1998 Jeep Wrangler not to work if changing the fuses did not solve the problem?
Are the gauges mechanical or electrical? (LED DISPLAY) If it's both the gauges and the lighting, i'd use a voltmeter and probe the circuit where the fuse is that you replaced. Check to see if voltage is flowing thru. If it isn't, then there's a break in the circuit somewhere... and the hard part sta…rts. USUALLY, it's a lose ground that's either poorly bolted to the chassis, or is rusted or something that prevents it from providing the proper ground. I have the same problem in my 98 wrangler. My gages go on and off intermitantly. The dealer said it was the molex wire connector from the computer to the gage panel. They wanted $900. so im trying to find the part online. I am not a mechanic, but there is a TSB on this for my 1999 Jeep Cherokee. I was at the point I was going to replace the entire dash module, around $900 when I found the TSB. The fix is a $7 plug that plugs into the back of the module. All that needs to be done is to cut out the old plug and splice in the new one. I haven't had this problem in about 4 months, it was an every day, all day occurence. Find the TSB for the exact name of the part etc. Just ask your local dealerships service manager about it. He may not want to tell you, but he will. One my 93, the back of the instrument cluster is basically a circuit board with "ribbons" of connectors going from the main wire harness/plug. Check to see if you have appropriate signals coming from the plug itself and/or there are no breaks in these "ribbons" My dash does the same thing. I normally bump the top left front of the dash in a forward motion. That normally fixes it for a while anyways. I was told by a technision that it was to many keys on my key ring. I think dealerships just like to take you money. So unless you brother or sister is the technision don't listen to them. $900 for a new cluster is just insane. My Wrangler is a 98 almost 10 years old. who wants to spend that much to get it fixed? I have a 99 Jeep Wrangler that this happened to. I took the instrument cluster off, used compressed air to blow out the plug and reinstalled. It hasn't happen since. I think the connection gets loose over time. It's not difficult to take off the instrument cluster. Use a flat head screw driver to pry the cover off the top of the dash (over the defrost vents) and remove the screws on either side below of the steering wheel. The panel is attached on the top and bottom w/ Phillip's head screws. I haver had this problem on a Jeep that I have been working on and finaly found a bad Airbag Control Module. I replaced the module and everything started working again. (MORE)
Answer . It neeeds to be checked out as the printed circuit can have problems.. Answer . The switch that controls your driving lights ie headlights, turn signals etc. could be bad. Check the fuse first. If it keeps blowing the switch could be shorting out to gnd.
The Gauges and Dash Lights have a fuse called "Illum / Guages". The fusebox located by the driver door should contain the fuse. If you look at the back of the cover of the fuse box it will tell you what fuse to check. The Dome Light (the light on the roof) has a fuse inside the engine fusebox.
if you have recently installed a new stereo deck this may be why: there is a wire that dimms and brightens the display on your stock stereo (which is connected to your dash and tail lights) and most after market stereos do not have a place to wire this in, so some time the wire is just pushed back i…nto the dash and it ends up grounding out and blowing the fuse. if this is the situation, pull the stereo back out and make sure that all of the wires that were connected to the stock stereo and now are not connected to the new one, are cut back (just the uninsullated part of the wire, not the entire wire) so that no copper wires are sticking out past the insullation, then cap the ends with wire nuts and wrap elecrical tape around the wire nut and the wire ( since electrical tape streches make sure that you wrap the tape in the same direction you tightened the wire nut, to keep the wire nut from coming loose or falling off, cause since it is in a vehicle there will be quite a bit of vibration.) however if this is not the case and you have not insalled a new stereo, i would try and replace the fuse, and if it blows open again then you have a short some where in the circuit. i hope that this helps you! The tail light assemblies on late-90s Chevrolets have a tendency to turn defective after about 5 or 6 years. This could be your tail light problem. (MORE)
Why would the dash cluster lights on a 2002 Chevy Suburban start flashing and the speedometer tachometer and gauges only work intermittantly?
Answer . \nThe entire dash electrical pod as an assembly may be loose . I would take it out and inspect it and the contacts where it plugs in.
What could be the problem of all the interior lights not working in a 2001 Pontiac Montana if all the fuses look good?
even a blown fuse looks good.......it must be tested to see if it is good, make sure your switch up on your roof is in the right position

What do all of the warning lights on a 2002 Pontiac Montana van mean LCD display in instrument panel cluster?
A circle with the bottom quarter solid with jagged or wavy like lines on the top. The parking brake light comes on as well. I assume I have a brake problem but the book doesn't tell me. This light means low brake fluid level.
What could be the problem of all interior lights not working if the fuses look good on a 2001 Mercedes-Benz C240?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nBoy, I'm racking my brain as I remember having this problem on my '98, but can't remember what it was!\nSomething like ignoring service cycle or that weird security system reset maybe?\n. \n Answer \n. \nthere could possibly be a short in the wiring or a bad gr…ound if all the fuses look correct.\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \nThats right, I think it was use the actual key to lock and unlock the door (not the remote).

The 1996 GMC Yukon brake lights work by receiving power from thebrake light relay switch. The brake light relay switch is connectedto the brake pedal.
Answer . First thing comes to mind is if you have pushed the interior light defeat button located next to the headlight switch? That would be the easy answer. Believe me it has happened before with new owners.. Next you have to check the fuse blocks. There is one under the hood and one under th…e rear seat on the drivers side.. Good luck! (MORE)
Answer Check the fuse Check the control switch on dash (if any) labeled with a light bulb symbol My Interior lights worked when I turned them on manually with the roll switch, but when I set the switch to neutral and placed the auto switch to on, so that when the doors were opened the light sho…uld come on, they would not. Answer: The little push switch located on the side of the dash when the door is closed its pressed in by the door, when the door is open the switch springs out and the light comes on. If this switch is bad or has a short (jiggle) interior lights wont work when door is open and dash is set to AUTO. Replace! (MORE)
Answer . if they both stop working at the same time its a fuse 99% sure
2002 gmc Yukon abs and brake lights are lit on dash noise from outside vehicle under drivers seat brakes work fine abs does not work?
The ABS Control Module is out. Common problem on GMC. I have a 2001 GMC Yukon that I just fixed. Here is how: Thanks to one of the other forums for this information. I tried this solution and it worked great. I had it back in under a week. The hardest part was removing the module which is in a tric…ky spot under the frame on the drivers side on a 2001 Yukon. They are located in different places on different vehicles...some are lucky enough to have it mounted under the hood! You have to use a torx bit socket to remove. Be careful not to strip it out. I think if I had to do it all over again I would have just taken it to a body shot and negotiated a price to remove it for me. I can't imagine they would charge more than $50 to do so. Getting it back on was much easier for some reason. My total cost was $171 which included the rebuild and the return shipping. Got it back in under a week from ModuleMaster.com and they were very nice on the phone. The dealer will charge you $1000 - $1500 to fix what you can for under $200! (MORE)
You are probly dealing with a couple fuses being blown in your fuse panal. Check your owners manual, I think there is a specific fuse for guages, and another for interior lights. I am willing to bet you have other lights out on your interior you probly havent even noticed. Your fuse panal is located… under the dash, on the left of the steering column. (MORE)
This might help you a little bit,I have a 96 Cherokee that dose that, took it to shop still having problem your flywheel may be the problem you starter maybe in a dead spot on your flywheel(Missing a tooth)
2004 jeep grand Cherokee the power windows will not work and the interior lights will not go out and the power door lock on the drivers door will not work?
You most likely have a broken wire in the harness that runs from the body to the drivers door. The wires like to break near the door hinge in that black boot. Here's how to fix the problem: Remove the black boot by lifting upward and pulling away ROM the door. You will most likely find a thick bla…ck wire that has broken. Remove about 3/16" of insulation from both ends. I'm not sure what it's called but you can purchase this at any hardware store: it is a one inch straight tube about 3/16" in diameter and you place the exposed copper wire of the broken wire in it and "crimp it" using a pliers. Repeat with the other end of the broken wire so both ends of the broken wire are now connected. Replace the boot (this is the hardest part) and it's good to go!! Total cost to fix is about $0.50.

92 Honda accord interior lights on door and overhead not working when driver side doors are opened but works fine with passenger side.?
This isn't an answer but I have the same problem w/ my Honda civic... ik they arent the same but the light wont turn on when neither doors in the front are open... I think it's got something to do with the sensor or whatever... the one that's black and feels rubbery.
switch works off a rod attached to brake arm. they do wear out and or malfunction.check harness which goes into switch for continuity on six wires and proper connection. replace two 1157s and mini bulb
Why is only the drivers side rear cluster of lights not working except for brake light and reverse light?
\nDid you check the bulbs to make sure that they're not burned out? Brake/tail light bulbs usually have two lamps built into a single glass bulb. Maybe half of it is burned out.
Why would my Volvo S60 gauges and warning lights not work ie fuel gauge rev counter speedo temp gauge and all warning lights clock mileomoeter etc work about 10 of the time?
Just been to the dealer with the same problem. Turned out that it's a diode behind the dash and apparently it can't be replaced on its own, i.e. I will need to get a new dash installed at a cost of Â£600. Second hand dashboard is not an option because when the dash is installed the dealership says… it needs to be programmed for the car. (MORE)
Instrument cluster won't light up 90 lebaron changed instrument cluster digital electronic and will only light up with park lights on all gauges work but won't work with key on running what's wrong?
If the instrument panel wonÃt light up, there may be a problem withthe wiring. There may also be some fuses that are out.
Usually the problem is due to a bad ground as the car is mostly fiberglass. Also check the bulbs.
All my dashboard lights went out as well as the ehadlights brake lights and interior lights. Power locks and windows are not working as well?
this happened with me when my astra went to get head light bulbs changed car also lost power, no electrics worked. I got mine put on a diagnostic and it was traced to an electrical fualt that can only be picked up on diagnostics. My best advice to you is to go to your local garage and get them to …run a check on it with diagnostics it might just be a slight fault. (MORE)
You have a front marker light harness that is wore and shorting out against the frame , between the bumper and the frame.You will have to fix the broken wire and tape the black tube in place that protects the wire.FUse is under the hood in the fuse box on passenger side
The headlights are on a separate circuit. Check the fuses and if that's not the problem check the headlight switch. You may need to get into the vehicle and trace back the wire that provides power to the faulty circuit. Remember to not replace parts until you've found a real problem and you've bee…n able to verify the problem through testing the part. (MORE)
Do I need to replace the entire instrument cluster on 2001 Monte Carlo SS if gauges still work but the lights do not and all the fuses check okay.?
I had the same problem. It's the headlight switch. It needs to be replaced. You have to remove the dash for that, which is easy. The switch rins from $107.00 on the internet, to about $140.00 at the Chevy dealer.
There is a dimmer switch on the das board. Lower left side under the steering column. Could be turned down or even broke. If not the bulbs could be bad, but there are several of them. To have them all go bad at once would be rare. Check the voltage on the switch and if its good then check the dash. …If not trace it back to a fuse. Good luck. (MORE)
you might have blown a fuse the fuse box is on the driverside by your left foot and the other is under the hood in the black box on the left when you stand in front of the car over the wheel
you press the hasid lights botten then get out and chek If you are referring to your system fault warning lights, i.e. the service engine soon light or your traction control lights, when you start the car you should see these lights come on. What they are doing is checking the system computers and …if it finds everything ok, all the lights go out. If one of the lights stays on, there is a problem. The way to check it is to start the car or start to accessory and see if they light up- If not all of them light, you have a fault. Hopefully this will never happen because most lilkely the instrument panel cluster would have to be replaced to fix it and that is a very large expense. (MORE)
just happened on my 06 chevy express van. found answer in earlier question for an 07 van: fuse block under hood. driver's side. number 18 TCB#2. replace the fuse. there is an under-engineered ground in the reverse circuit. if you back up with the dome lights on, it could blow the fuse.
These are on the same fuse as well as the dashboard clock and if you look along the bottom row of fuses, there is a 7.5 amp fuse( brownish color) around the middle of the row. This fuse will need to be replaced and the accessories should be fine. If the fuse blows again, get it checked as replacing… with a higher rated fuse is asking for problems. (MORE)

My lights radio interior lights and my engine all stopped working at the same time on a 95 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme how do you trouble shoot this electrical problem?
I had a very similar problem on my 95 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. After hours of pain staking work I finally found that a wire was loose. The wire is coated red and is beneath the fuse box on the drivers side directly behind the windshield wash tank. There is an eyelet on the end of the wire and one… screw holding it in place directly under the fuse box. As soon as I tightened the screw my problem went away. (MORE)
Uh...I would first check to make sure your bulbs are not blown. check brake light fuse. If still no trace wiring fro brake lights back. Hope this helps. You might also check the brake light switch on brake pedal.
it could have to do with the preasure systems. or your gears may be grinding. go to your machanic and check it out :p
The Peugeot 307 has several warning light symbols with differentmeanings. The oil can symbol means an oil change is needed whilethe exclamation point means the tire pressure is low.
i have the same problem my dash light turns on when i turn on the interior lights but when i turn on only ........the dash light they wont turn on but they work when the interior lights are on ........so they do work .,...is there a separate fuse ?
It is possibly caused by a failure in the communication system between the computers on the van. Have the system checked for codes.
Brake LightTroubleshooting (check in this order): 1. Check Fuse 2. Check Bulbs 4. Check Switch in brake pedal Most likely its the fuse or bulb. See sources and related links below for bulb information.
A flasher relay interrupts power to the hazard lights making them flash. The relay can be a dedicated relay or it can be the same relay that operates the turn signals. Depends on the make, model, and year of the vehicle.
Where is the relay fuse for the signal light hazard light interior light located 1998 Grand Marquis they all are not working?
The signal light hazard is not working because of an electricalfault. Call an electrician to fix this.
Check your fuses. Make sure they don't have a little bit of corrosion built up if they are good. Simply taking them out and putting them back in can clean them. Check for power at your light switch.
